Neil Young Recording; More On ‘Archives’ Delay

Neil Young has been recording, but there are “no firm plans on any album yet,” according to his publicist.

Young’s last album of new studio material was 2006’s Living With War, released in May of that year. A second version of that album, Living with War: In the Beginning, was released last December. Two live recordings have also been released during the past year: Live at the Fillmore East, a recording with Crazy Horse from 1970 was released in September and Live At Massey Hall, a live accoustic set from 1971, was released in March of this year.

As for Neil Young The Archives Vol. 01 1963 – 1972, the release date has been pushed back from fall of this year ; it is now scheduled for release in February 2008. “There is some new sonic upgrades to the DVD portion thatneeded to be finalized,” Young’s publicist wrote in an email in response to questions about the set and Young’s current recording activities.

In April Young’s management had confirmed a fall release for the first volume of the long-awaited multi-CD/DVD collection. The retrospective project was begun in 1989.

I have been hearing about the Archive releases since 1988. I'll believe it will happen when I actually have a copy in my hands. The question now is will they be released while there are still CDs?

As always, comments are welcome.
